    Exclamation Burberry Brit Red...for men?

    I asked about a fragrance that smelled like sweet gingerbread cookies a few days ago and someone suggested Burberry Brit Red. I already have Burberry Brit for Men on my "To Buy" list, so Brit Red caught my eye. However when I looked it up on Basenotes, I discovered that it is a woman's fragrance. How many of you guys own and wear Brit Red, what does it smell like, and how is it when used as a man's fragrance?

    I'm looking for a sweet gingerbread-cookie gourmand.

    I believe it was I that made that original recommendation Shaheen.

    As stated in the last thread you created, I mentioned it is a scent made for women, though, as most men here might attest to, that should not necessarily deprive you of enjoying a smell.

    I found that when I applied it to my skin, the soft floral accords receded, and the peppery gingerbread note moved to the front, as is often the case when wearing a perfume marketed for women. More often than not its the more masculine accords that emerge when mixed with a man's chemistry.

    By all means try it confidently, and if its something you'd go for, then get it. Otherwise move on.

    I just tried Hermèssence Ambre Narguilé and to me that is exactly what it smelled like just with a touch of honey.

    Don't be afraid to wear Brit Red just because it's marketed to women.

    A similar men's fragrance (with orange) is Ultrared for Men by Paco Rabanne. Very sweet and gingerbread-y.
